Emmanuel Wiggins/ Summer Street Renovations
Summer Street Renovations was created 5 years ago when i moved to Atlanta
from Philadelphia. The company is a spin off of Wiggins and Wrights
Construction, which was based out of Philadelphia. When i moved to Atlanta
I vowed to never do construction again, because of the economy unstable
income. I slowly began to do odd jobs before finding a need to launch my
first solo project, Summer Street Renovations. As a kid i grew up on a
small block called Summer Street, which held all my childhood memories,
hence why i decided to name my company after it. My company specializes in
the theory of ” One Stop Shopping” and our motto is simple, ” We fix
everything, but a broken heart”

Sonja Heck/ Spot-On Consulting
I am so lucky that I get to do the job I love – helping people at all stages/levels find their ideal jobs. I have helped hundreds of people secure more meaningful employment. I have worked for 20 years in the corporate world, hold MS and MBA degrees, speak 3 languages, and have travelled to over 35 countries. I also dropped out of high school in the 10th grade so I know how hard it is to overcome a less-than-stellar past. I would be honored to help your listeners uncover new ways to find their first job, provide advice if they have faced/facing a job layoff after decades of employment, restart their careers after being a caretaker/stay-at-home parent, or change careers altogether.
